Sugar Monsters!! How are you? How was your weekend?!?!
I had a fabulous weekend. Fab-u-lous! And, I hope you did too.
Now it’s monday
Monday… back to work, back to school, back to responsibilities and back to longing for the comfy-cozy feeling of being in your pj’s snuggled in bed.
Let’s rescue Monday… Let’s instead give Monday a great name, and an amazing feeling by adding some chocolate to this party.
How can you have a lame monday if there’s chocolate involved?
Yaaa-hooooo for Mondays with chocolate
These cookies are SO incredibly chocolatey… and oh so SUPER-DUPER minty fresh.
If that hasn’t sold you on these little gobs of yumm … there’s thin mints in them.
Confession: I read everywhere the best way to eat thin mints.. were frozen. So, I froze them… and almost ate the entire package.
No words. *droool*
Besides, rescuing monday … I needed to rescue my waist-line… so I made these.
Now, I get to share the yumm-osity with all of you good-looking people.
